I've been photographing Anjali since she was a little toddler-and long before her baby brother came along. I have to say that's got to be the best part of lifestyle photography-being invited to all the magnificent milestones of a a family's life and watching their little ones grown and change and blossom. It's absolutely incredible.
Being a mama has changed every single aspect about my photography. I "get" it. And when Anjali's mom approached me about shooting her baby girl's first day of school naturally I was all about it. I anticipated getting choked up for a moment-but I didn't anticipate having to literally pull myself away from her at the end-when I say my clients become family-it's no joke.
Take a little peek at some shot from Anjali's First Day of School...
Putting on her gloss- such a CUTIE!
Special St. Raymond embellished socks is just what her outfit needed :)
Anjali's favorite breakfast of nutella crepes was prepared by her loving mom to start her day off right!
Anjali gets her first glimpse of her school- SO EXCITING!!!
Am I the only one who thinks kindergarten is like completely magical? Walking around and seeing your little name all over the place-I absolutely remember things like that from my childhood.
that moment when the excitement starts to turn into a bit of anxiety....
knowing that in a few minutes you're on your own.......oh my gosh her little face-SO SWEET.
Heidi and Krishna were TROOPERS-they kept it together for the most part :)
These two parents have an incredible bond with this little girl and I just think this little family is priceless. I cannot wait to see what happens next <3
